Sure, Paradise Point is higher than the Tower, but it is also considerable more expensive and doesn't offer the same historical experience and insights that you get at Blackbeard's Tower - the views from the Tower are also very good and, in our opinion, better...More

We drove and it was only five dollars to park. The tram on Wednesday night is only five dollars per person. There is a live band from seven to nine. The local people are friendly and love to dance.

We actually drove our rental car up to paradise point. The views were wonderful and different than you can get elsewhere. There are shops and a restaurant with great views as well.

The view of Charlotte Amalie and the surrounding bays and hillsides are worth the trip. On Wednesdays, the fee is $5, and there is live music at the top. The restaurant at the top is extremely casual--not a setting I would seek for dinner, but...More

A bit of a wait as there are not a cars running. The view was gorgeous and the restaurant at the top was sublime. Stunning views down to the ports overlooking the ships. Turquoise waters and yacht watching. It doesn't get better than that!

So it's $20.50 US for adults and $10.50 US for kids 12 and under, and takes 7 mins to get to the top. Get on the last carriage going up for the best view! But once you get up the top that view is AMAZING!!!!...More

A nice ride up to Paradise Point with a great view over Havensight and the very big cruiseships. There´s many souvernir shops, maybe a little too commercial.
